Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
So he looked this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

King James Bible
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Looking all around and seeing no one, he struck the Egyptian dead and hid him in the sand.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

he looked.

Acts 7:24-26 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged …

slew. If the Egyptian killed the Hebrew, Moses only acted agreeably to the divine law in thus slaying the Egyptian; nor did he violate the law of Egypt; for, according to Diodorus Siculus he who saw a man killed, or violently assaulted on the highway, and did not rescue him, if he could, was punished with death. Moses, therefore, in this transaction, acted as a brave and good man; especially as at this time there was little probability of obtaining justice on an Egyptian murderer.
